50 Summer Bucket List Ideas For The Whole Family With Free Printable

I don’t know about you, but I can hardly believe May is over! Cue the music…School’s Out for Summer!

Summer break means fun and excitement, while simultaneously causing dread and anxiety to mothers everywhere! Ahem…you know it does, who are you kidding? 😉

Well, have no fear because I have just the thing to cure what ails you! The Summer Bucket List.

This Summer our family decided to put together a list of all of the things that we would like to see, create, and do over the Summer break.

We gathered our family around, and everyone got to contribute. Even our youngest had suggestions…who may have been a little hard to understand, but I think I got all of her suggestions written down. 🙂

This is such a fun thing to do, because the kiddos answers may surprise you. Our oldest suggested things that weren’t even on my mommy radar.

The Summer Bucket List is great for planning out your day, and also for those times when boredom hits…you can proudly exclaim ‘Let’s look at our Bucket List!’

We like to put our Summer Bucket List on display in the kitchen so everyone passes by it daily. The kiddos also LOVE getting to mark things off of the list too.

Since you may be asking yourself ‘Sounds great, but where do I start?’. I thought I would share some examples of what is on our list to get you started.
